Sensing some Royal exhaustion among its readers, London’s Guardian created an alternative, William & Kate-free version of its website.

The paper embedded a toggle button at the top of the homepage — one for “Royalists,” the other for “Republicans” (not the political party — the ideology).

It’s not quite on the level of that Charlie Sheen blocker for your browser a couple of enterprising programmers built back in March, but for those suffering from Royal fatigue, it’ll do just fine.

Bloody brilliant.
